Invitation to comment

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission) is inviting comment from interested individuals or organisations on the consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) regarding the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards.

What comments are being sought?

The consultation RIS describes three options for maintaining the NSQHS Standards, which includes the Commission’s recommended option.
The Commission is seeking feedback on your preferred option as well as the costs and benefits to you of implementing version 2 of the NSQHS Standards. The information collected from this consultation process will be submitted to health ministers along with the final version of the NSQHS Standards for their consideration.

How can I get involved?

All submissions must be received by close of business on Friday, 5 August 2016.

The time available to finalise version 2 of the NSQHS Standards and submit it for approval is limited. Therefore, late submissions will not be included in the analysis provided to health ministers.
